Eateries in Artesia's Little India offer a rich and broad variety of South Asian cuisine, but none surpasses Mumbai Ki Galliyon Se for its authentic Mumbai street food. The family-run business is as casual as they come – it’s located in a strip mall and food is served on Styrofoam plates – but you’d be remiss to let that bother you, especially because the low overhead is likely how they keep their prices so low. Try the dahi batata puri (a complexly flavored lentil-stuffed fried ball), dabeli (a spicy potato snack with grapes and pomegranate seeds), pav bhaji (a soupy spice-and-veggies concoction) and piyush (a shake-like beverage made with saffron and pistachios).
